Huntington Senior Sarah Krisch Chooses Georgia Institute of Technology
May 4, 2023
Sarah Krisch could be a star at anything she chose to do. The Huntington High School Class of 2023 member is that talented. You name it, she can do it. The senior is headed to Georgia Institute of Technology where she plans to begin her quest for a career as a pediatrician.
President of Huntington’s National Honor Society, Ms. Krisch’s academic grade average resides somewhere in the stratosphere. A member of multiple academic honor societies, the senior has been on the high school’s high honor roll during every marking period in the past four years.
The teenager credits “quite a few things” for her success, including following her interests, working hard to fulfill the high expectations she sets for herself, balancing collaboration with thinking independently and being creative. She has found time to devote to the Blue Devil athletic program, participating in many seasons of sports.
Corresponding secretary of the Environmental Club, secretary of Grandfriends and a member of the high school’s robotics team, Ms. Krisch also volunteers with Huntington’s Habitat for Humanity chapter and she participates in the Science Olympiad program.
Ms. Krisch regularly volunteers at her church, too, making deliveries to the food pantry and coordinating food drives. At Huntington High School, she interned with a physics class this year and has been a lab assistant in each of the past two years with her former Advanced Placement Chemistry teacher, Danielle Raguzin.
The senior said that “fostering very close friendships” has made the past her high school experience worthwhile. She has “loved” having the same group of students in most of her classes for the past four years.
Outside of school hours, Ms. Krisch works part-time at Ralph’s Italian Ices and she especially loves going to the beach. It’s altogether fitting that she was voted “Beach Bum” by her senior classmates.
Ms. Krisch plans to study biomedical engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology on a pre-med academic track. The college is ranked second nationally for the Huntington senior’s major and fourth nationally for undergraduate engineering programs. Needless to say, Ms. Krisch is very excited what lies beyond high school.
